    I thought maybe some of you wouldn't have heard about the Golight Stryker series yet, so I thought I'd throw them out here for you guys because I am going to be grabbing me one soon.

    I was working on the A/C in a building that did vehicle maintenance on power utility trucks today and noticed a dozen or so boxes of these lights sitting on the shelves of the parts closet, so I started asking some questions and doing some research.

    I've seen these lights before- they seem pretty awesome but I had no idea about the performance until now.

    wireless remote control (dash-mounted AND hand-held)
    500,000 candle power at 5.5 amps
    370 degree rotation
    135 degree tilt
    Salt waterproof and weatherproof

    Really cool, but at $250-300 each, a bit pricey.

    Well, the first time I laid eyes on one was on this.

    ...but it didn't peak my interest until I learned how powerful they are.

    Well, thats kinda interesting. Never would have thought to put it on the hood. I'd think it might be more useful on the roof and probably look a little less silly.

    I completely agree- I'm just talking about the light itself. I saw this truck in the parking lot of a Pei Wei. :laugh:

    Haha yeah, I figured you'd catch that. I saw these on the Sumpter County Elec. trucks, they're standard issue lights on all of there vehicles now.

    That is pretty badass. I don't understand the armaflex on his bumper guard though, seems a little pansy. :D

    GoLights are great!!! We have them on all of our fire engines. They become very useful in night time vehicle accidents, search and rescue, haz-mat incidents, etc..etc... Anything at night, we use them about 90% of the time.;)

    Guy at my college had one on the roof of his Dodge 4x4, was cool but required a hole in the roof, did not have a wide beam and only good for 100-150 yards. It was the smallest version they make and it was still pretty big. If it was HID and had a bit larger spot it would be better.
